How it works

Top  Next

MetaCompress is an ISAPI filter for IIS (Internet Information Server). Most web browsers, including the most popular Microsoft Internet Explorer, can access compressed content of web sites as well as ordinary HTML pages. If a site packed with MetaCompress is accessed by a client browser supporting compressed content, MetaCompress packs text on the fly. Otherwise, MetaCompress leaves the requested content uncompressed.

This feature gives you an incontestable advantage: the text content of your site will load faster.

That will increase your site accessibility for users who have a slow dial-up connection (14400 - 19200 bps) and speed up loading pages on your site in general.


This filter is most useful if your site contains a lot of text information. For example:

forums or web mail clients;
news portals, documentation sites, virtual libraries;
article archives and so on


MetaCompress advantages:


Increases the pages loading speed 3 - 5 times;
Reduces the Internet traffic by 20 - 60% (depending on the site content);
Supports compression using HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 protocols;
Creates and analyzes compression logs;
Can compress streaming content;
Can compress any content, not only text;
Easily configured. Changing settings without restarting IIS;
Simplified installation and uninstallation processes;


Make your site faster and more accessible!
